After a long life and dealing with serious illness, Eli Timoner decides to end his life by medical means. Timoner is a husband, father and successful businessman, and his decision to end his life generates emotional and thought-provoking reactions from the people close to him. The loving and supportive family accompanies the dying father in the few days he has left until the end of his life.

Award-winning director Ondi Timoner intimately reveals her family's intimate and heartbreaking journey towards closure. Eli and his family members courageously and humorously formulate a surprising and moving guide to the inevitable process of separation. They show the grace that can spring forth even in the face of death and demonstrate how we can live even as we are about to die.
